I attended the Rainbow Community Center: 2018 Volunteer Appreciation / Recognition Day Picnic.


This is the tasty food that I ate.  Has anyone else noticed that many of the posts in my blog are about food?

My revised proposal for an official sequel to Fallout: Equestria

After the series finale of My Little PonyFriendship Is Magic Kkat or somepony else could write a sequel to Fallout Equestria.  Imagine that Littlepip (aka The Stable Dweller) and her friends find and perfect Star Swirl the Bearded’s time travel spell.  They travel back in time to one year before Twilight Sparkle completes with success her entrance exam for Princess Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns.  They then setup a conference for both Princess Celestia and the Zebra Caesar.  During this meeting, Littlepip and her friends explain with words as well as PipBuck text files, video files, and memory orbs what has happened in the future and how both Princess Celestia and the Zebra Caesar must work together to prevent that future from happening.

After that meeting, Princess Celestia and the Zebra Caesar alarmed and unnerved from the possibility of a dark future for both their nations pledge that the pirates would never be allowed to have an opportunity to foalnap the pony tourists that would also prevent the subsequent “Wonderbolt Massacre”.  Thus, the Zebra gem pirates don’t find seventeen vulnerable pony tourists during their kidnapping attempt.  Instead, the pirates find elite, Zebra Royal Guards that appear as pony tourists thanks to unicorn magical illusions and full-body costumes similar to the costume Pinkie Pie wore when she was disguised as Fluttershy during the episode “The Crystal Empire - Part 1”.  Once the pirates surrender, are disarmed, and then are bound; the Zebra Caesar’s legal courts passes judgment on the pirates.

Princess Celestia and the Zebra Caesar also agreed to prevent their nations from creating firearms or turning their lasers into weapons.  This would explain why pony party cannon technology - an explosive firing a projectile from within a meal tube - was never turned into lethal weapons, such as firearms.  That is why the only pony to use any type of cannon against an enemy was Pinkie Pie against an invasion of changelings during the episode “A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2”.

Note:  This gives a logical reason why Princess Celestia said in the episode “Friendship is Magic, part 2”, “Twilight Sparkle, my faithful student. I knew you could do it.”  I’ve wondered why Princess Celestia trusted her liberty, her sister Luna, and her kingdom in the hooves of such a young unicorn and now we have a reasonable explanation.  Princess Celestia already knew in advance that Twilight would defeat Nightmare Moon, because Littlepip and her friends had already told Princess Celestia that Twilight would defeat Nightmare Moon.

After that, Littlepip and her friends used the time travel spell to move forward in time to witness the events of the series finale.  Pleased in their belief that their pony nation will have a peaceful future, Littlepip and her friends were satisfied that all will be well when they returned to their own time.

However, when these protagonists return to their own time, they find that their pony nation had become a different version of the Equestrian Wasteland.  Consequently, Littlepip and her friends attempt to find out what caused this version of the Equestrian Wasteland to appear and then make plans to set things right, with or without using Star Swirl the Bearded’s time travel spell once again.  This sequel would also prove opportunities to include story ideas from the newer seasons, such as the changelings, the Crystal Empire, and Yakyakistan along with locations and creatures from the 2017 movie such as Klugetown, Hippogriffia, and Seaquestria.  When I first saw Klugetown and the inhabitants of Klugetown, I knew that town is tailor-made for Fallout: Equestria.

Note:  What the 2017 My Little Pony movie does better than Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.  In Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, Ben says, “Mos Eisley Spaceport. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.”  However, the 2017 pony movie is more entertaining, as we see instead of being told how bad the inhabitants of Klugetown are.

I saw Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom


I love stories about transitions:  Moving in space, time, and state of existence from one state, stage, subject, or place to another.  Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a story about transitions that is also a ten out of ten movie!

I attended the Block Party at the First Presbyterian Church of Duluth, Minnesota


This sign is located at the junction of East Second Street and North Third Avenue East.


Another sign south of the first sign on North Third Avenue East.


These are the food tents and eating areas at the Block Party.  I took my food back to my apartment because of the heat of the day.


This is delicious and free food that I got at the block party.

What I found on the front entrance of King Manor.


A spilled can of 7 Up and a walking cane under an empty, metal bench makes me wonder what is the story behind what happened here.  In fact, I often see things such as an abandoned loaf of bread in a trash can and wonder what the stories are that brought those things to a certain place at a certain time.

What I found at the junction of Rice Lake Road and East Skyline Parkway


I found this car wheel cover at the junction.


I put this car wheel cover on a traffic barrel base; because I thought it would make a nifty photograph.
